This patient suffers from dry macular degeneration and is unable to read, watch television or see her computer clearly. Dr. Rinkov fit her with a full diameter telescope for television with a Rx cap to place over her right eye for reading the computer. She was also fit with E scoop lenses with a yellow tint to reduce glare and to replace her former everyday glasses. These are custom lenses with a special curvature and thickness that enlarges objects slightly.
In addition, she was fit with bioptics. These are like having binoculars on the top of her prescription lens so she can see signs, cars and people much clearer and sooner.
This patient was struggling with macular degeneration. As a solution, Dr. Rinkov created lenses that use a prism to move the image the patient sees to a less degenerative part of the eye, have a tint to decrease glare and provide magnification of what is being seen.
